    many others than

    1) This will affect many others than us.
    Does this necessarily mean that it will affect us?

    2) I saw many others than him.
    Does this necessarily mean that I saw him?

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: many others than

    Neither of these work for me. Many people other than us would work.

    Re: many others than

    Having read the following, I think the intended meaning could be 'This will affect many people besides us'.

    Re: many others than

    Thank you, Tdol,

    Would:
    1a) This will affect many people other than us.
    necessarily mean that it will affect us?

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: many others than

    I think it will affect many people but not us.
    I am not a teacher.
